The Chivas Guadalajara vs Bayern Munich friendly match will be held this Thursday, July 31, 2014 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey. The Reds and the Rebaño will look to impress in front of their fans in what is expected to become an exciting match filled with goals.
The team coached by Pep Guardiola will play Thursday’s match with many absences as all the Germany national team members who won the World Cup, plus, Robben will not participate. This eliminates several key players from the Bayern Munich lineup, but at the same time, the Bundesliga team is one of the most talented in the world, which will still allow fans to see great players like Frank Ribery, Robert Lewandowski, or Javi Martinez.
Chivas of Guadalajara does have a full roster ready to face the world giants, however, they face a similar situation which may impede them from playing with their best eleven for the whole 90 minutes. The Rebaño Sagrado is in the early stages of the Liga MX Apertura 2014 season, and on Sunday they play their third match of their campaign. While it is expected that their best players will participate, it will be likely that the team splits the halves between the starters and alternate players.
Chivas Guadalajara vs Bayern Munich Prediction
The Chivas vs Bayern Munich match will be an exciting, yet close contest which will leave a good taste for the fans. Although the German side will miss their main players, they still have an outstanding roster which will complicate matters for the Mexican team. On the other hand, Chivas may enter as the underdog, but the most popular team in North America has played considerably well to start their Liga MX, and that form will carry into Thursday’s game. The Chivas vs Bayern Munich match will end in a 2-1 win for the Mexican team.
